Wake Up! is right next to Central Station, so once you make sure you leave the right exit and head the correct direction, it's less than a block walk away. This means getting to Circular Quay or the airport is extremely quick and convenient, plus you're right in the middle of Sydney and can walk to a ton of places as well.
The rooms leave a little to be desired with the layouts. Beds aren't assigned, and while there are lockers to use, they're all up against a single wall so just leaving your bag at/underneath your bed is often easier. Aside from one or two power outlets around the perimeter of the room, the only other plugs are up on top of the lockers where you can't really use a device when it's charging. There are desks in the hallways with plugs, but if you may get told by the staff late at night that you can't be out there due to potential noise complaints.
Side Bar is unfortunately not a great place to hang out as it seems like people take advantage of being right in the heart of Sydney by going to other locations to party at night. Even after midnight there won't be a crowd, so you're better off finding another place to go in the evenings.
While there's nothing bad about Wake Up!, there are enough other hostels in the immediate vicinity that I'll probably try another place the next time I'm in Sydney.
